Intrigued at where you found the symbol, I've never been able to find it.

The best I can do is to copy someone else's little 2, save it in Word, then paste it in when required.
There's no intrigue nor do I have any hidden secret to reveal; I just used the copy & paste method. :)

Re: Shed and Permitted Development Rights

I make the area 254.5ft², which is 23.6m²

But I have no intention of erecting a silo. It would look a little odd in an urban back garden. :)

Re: Shed and Permitted Development Rights

Unless permitted development rights have been withdrawn for your property as a result possibly of any previous planning applications granted / developments etc. (as is my case!) Then, technically, you would need to make an application. Paddock Thanks Paddock. I had checked that part and my house st...

Re: Shed and Permitted Development Rights

Thank you pilman. Your replies are most helpful. :D

Building the shed, just one to start with, will be the easier part. It's just a shame that I can no longer install the electrics.

Shed and Permitted Development Rights

Can I please check my understanding of Permitted Development Rights regarding building a shed in my back garden. I've read the stuff in the planning portal but it would be nice to confirm things. Planning Portal says: 1. Single storey, max eaves height 2.5m. Max height 4.0m with a dual pitched roof,...

Re: Encroaching ivy on neighbour

Whilst the ivy may have grown over, through or under the fence, it is also spread by birds that eat the berries. Who's to say which has resulted in the spread to your neighbour's garden, or which part of what has spread is due to simple growth or new plants from the seeds?

Re: Welsh govt. doubles council tax for English owners

How can that sort of injustice be perpetrated in the UK? There's also the injustice of someone owning more than one home, living in only one of them and leaving the other(s) empty. There's lots of options: 1. Do what span suggests 2. Sell up with the best will possible. Perhaps try to make sure it ...

Re: Legal Position

As a contrast: Let's say your neighbour bought a new car earlier this year. The tree contractor scuffed the bumper of the car. Notwithstanding being somewhat annoyed, your neighbour might demand a replacement car but he'd get a suitable repair. What is correct in the eyes of the law? I'm not sure bu...

Re: gardening curb

Morally - I think not.

Legally - probably yes.

What you are doing is commonly called "guerrilla gardening".

If you look for that term on the search engine of your choice (or Google), there's lots of information. :)

Re: NEW garden documentary for ITV

Spamming multiple other threads in various sections of the forum is an unacceptable way of trying to gather information for your miserable tv programme.

Miserable? Yes, simply because you indicate that it will focus on other people's misery for the entertainment of sallow minded tv cattle. :shock:

Re: Outdoor Fires - not bonfires

so it's not that there's actual smoke causing a nuisance? Yes, there is actual smoke; but it's the smell of the smoke that is causing the nuisance not the sight of it. So, by golly, don't berate me for something I haven't yet done. My intention is to sort things amicably without involving the LA. a...

Re: Outdoor Fires - not bonfires

Thanks Rosenberg; yes, the wording is a little bit semantics and, as you say, the gist is the same. No household members suffer from any of the conditions you mention but none of us like the smell of smoke - especially indoors! I'm an ex smoker (ex by close on 40 years) and before smoking was banned...

Re: Outdoor Fires - not bonfires

Hi Brainsey, how it inconvenienced you that's going to be the tricky bit IMHO... Kind regards, Mac As far as I know the LA don't ask that specific question; rather they ask how the nuisance affects you (such as keeps you awake for a noise nuisance), and that's somewhat more straightforward to answer.

Re: Outdoor Fires - not bonfires

I'll have to see what their reaction is to my comments. There are no LA rules against having a bonfire (that's the closest analogy on the LA site) and any action by the LA would depend on the fires being assessed as causing a statutory nuisance. The section ref bonfires includes these comments: Avoi...
